Crazy Video 'Worst Idea Ever': Woman Jumps Into Tiger Pen to Retrieve Cap
All that for a hat?
Observers at the Toronto Zoo looked on in horror as a woman suddenly jumped the fence at a tiger pen, reportedly to retrieve her fallen cap.
A YouTube video posted yesterday shows the woman hopping off a walkway to recover her hat, as the tiger rapidly paces back and forth behind a second protective fence and starts jumping up toward her.
“Worst idea ever,” someone says in the background.
Afterward, an onlooker is heard telling the woman, “You’re a moron.”
“You're a bad example to everyone else’s kids,” he says. “Get out of my face, you moron.”
The zoo is now investigating the incident. A spokesperson told local outlet CBC News that the woman “could have easily injured herself by exciting the animal in this way.”
Anyone who drops their belongings next time should let the staff know, so they can safely retrieve the item using the proper equipment, she said.
“The situation could have been much worse.”
